Yesterday marked 46 years since Singapore gained independence as a nation.
To celebrate, there was a plethora (don't you love that word) of things to do such as shop special National Day sales, visit museums for reduced rates, stroll around the marina and at the end of the day, sit back and watch a massive performance spectacular completed with huge fireworks. And just like Australia Day is a public holiday, National Day is a lovely excuse for a holiday too.

We spent the day lounging around the pool, eating fresh prawns and drinking beer and then gathering a few friends (6 children and 6 adults!) later in the night to watch the fireworks from our condo balcony.
Overall a beautiful, relaxing family day to celebrate Singapore's birthday.
